Compact and authoritative guidance on evidence-based treatment for ADHD in adultsAttention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) is a neurodevelopmental disorder that emerges during childhood. However, it is now well recognized that ADHD frequently persists over the lifespan and well into adulthood. Although ADHD is typically first identified during the childhood years, the presentation of symptoms may differ considerably between adults and children. Without appropriate symptom management, ADHD can significantly interfere with academic, emotional, social, and work functioning. When properly identified and diagnosed, however, outcomes in adults with ADHD who receive appropriate treatment are encouraging.This volume in the Advances in Psychotherapy series is both a compact "how to" reference, for use by professional clinicians in their daily work, and an ideal educational reference for practice-oriented students. The most important feature of this volume is that it is practical and "reader friendly".It has a similar structure to others in the series, and is a compact and easy to follow guide covering all aspects of practice that are relevant in real life in the assessment and management of ADHD in adults.
Tables, relevant case studies, and marginal notes assist orientation, while suggestions for further reading, support groups, and educational organizations are provided for individuals and professionals.A companion volume Attention-Deficit/Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) in Children and Adolescents is also available.
